Forbidden WhatsApp words that could get your account banned

There are some words that if used in the names of WhatsApp chats could cause the blocking of your account. And it is that the messaging app establishes in its terms and conditions that it can take action if it finds signs of a crime.

The application states that users accessing its services must use them “only for legal, authorized and acceptable purposes.” However, not taking the time to read the terms and conditions before authorizing the installation of the app on your device makes some people unaware of these guidelines.

“You will not use our services in a way that is illegal, obscene, defamatory, threatening, intimidating, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or that promotes or encourages illegal or inappropriate conduct, such as the promotion of violent crimes, exploiting or endangering children, or coordinating harmful behavior”, states the legal and acceptable use section of the application, regardless of what type of device it is installed on.

Meanwhile, words such as pedophilia, pornography and their derivatives violate the rules of use of the application, so if it is detected that an account used them, the sanction may be blocking.

“You must use our services in accordance with our published Terms and Policies. If you violate our Terms or Policies, we may take action on your account, such as disabling or suspending your account, in which case you agree not to create another account without our permission.”

But it is not the only reason why a WhatsApp account can be blocked. Other aspects that violate their rules are:

  • Violate, misappropriate or infringe the rights of WhatsApp, its users or third parties, including the rights of privacy, publicity, intellectual or industrial property, copyright or other property rights.
  • Posting falsehoods, misstatements, or misleading claims; (d) impersonate another person.
  • Sending illegal or impermissible communications, such as bulk messaging, automated messaging, autodialing, and similar methodologies
  • Any other non-personal use of their services, unless otherwise authorized by us.

Can a blocked account be recovered?

In case the suspension was temporary, yes. WhatsApp usually applies a penalty in case its rules are violated and the user can use their account again after the penalty period established by the app ends. However, there is a possibility that the block is not temporary, in that case the account can also be recovered but you will have to contact the support of the messaging application and they will determine if the account is restored or not.
